About a year ago I bought into a Kickstarter for Darklands, a dark fantasy miniatures line and game by Mierce Miniatures. It has some of the best figures on the market. I was especially interested in the large beasts and weird troops featured by the Ysian Drune and Fomoraic factions. The Ysian Drunes are twisted Celts who worship a demon. They wear hoods to hide their eyes from all but the beauty of their dark queen, and experiment on the flesh of themselves and beasts to create abominations for war. Whereas the Fomoraic are followers of Baalor of the Evil Eye, from Celtic legend. in other words, more bad guys. The Fomoraic have perhaps the most diverse line of miniatures in the game: humans, beastmen (gabrax( and beast-men of all descriptions, including rhinos, minotaurs, elephants, and more.
I finally decided to solo the game, the rules for which can be found for free on Mierce's web site. That includes the army lists, which are also free. The free rules are "Quickstarter" rules, but at 95 pages you can tell it's not a simplistic game. As I understand it the full rules will have more options for unit orders and for morale effects, among other things.
For this battle I decide that two warbands would be fighting over a small village and its livestock. After all, it takes a lot to feed to monsters of Darklands! I created two 500 gold (points) armies.
